Crooked or misaligned teeth can erode your self-confidence, make teeth cleaning difficult, or even feel painful when you chew. At Hendricks Dental Specialists in Brentwood, Tennessee, the family dentistry and orthodontic specialists offer Invisalign® treatment to improve the position of your teeth and perfect your smile. Call the office to learn more, or use the online booking tool today.
Invisalign is an orthodontics treatment that straightens misaligned and crooked teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners. Dr. Robert at Hendricks Dental Specialists offers full orthodontics care using the most current technology, such as an intraoral scanner (no molds), traditional braces, and clear braces, in addition to Invisalign treatment.
The benefits of Invisalign include:
The aligners are comfortable, and because they are clear, many people won't notice you’re wearing them. Unlike traditional braces, you can take the aligners out of your mouth to eat, floss, and brush your teeth.
The Hendricks Dental Specialists team lets you know if Invisalign is right for you after discussing your desired results and your oral health history. They review your dental X-rays and examine your teeth and gums before tailoring a personalized treatment that matches your needs.
During Invisalign treatment at Hendricks Dental Specialists, your dentist digitally scans your mouth and teeth. That allows a dental lab to create custom-fitted aligners. When your aligners are ready, you wear them over the top of your upper teeth, lower teeth, or both sets of teeth for 20-22 hours every day.
Keep the aligners clean using an Invisalign cleaning system or a toothbrush and toothpaste. Rinse the aligners in warm, but not hot, water. Brush your teeth after meals before putting the aligners back in your mouth.
While every patient is different, you may be able to complete Invisalign treatment in as little as 6-12 months, but sometimes, it takes longer.
After you complete Invisalign treatment, you’re ready to enjoy your new, more beautiful new smile. You might wear a retainer, at least during part of the day or at night, to prevent your teeth from shifting out of their ideal alignment. See the Hendricks Dental Specialists team at least every six months for a dental cleaning and exam.
